In brief: How do you feel?
Different women have different reactions to menopause.
Some women find it difficult because it's a definite sign that they're aging and they may be facing a home without their children. Other women are happy about entering a new phase of their life unburdened by child rearing responsibilities and the need for birth control. Many women feel both ways, and more. If you feel it, it's normal.
